Our Rules

Welcome to Seize the Birthday! This is a weekly challenge blog, aimed at helping you get those birthday cards done. 

There will be 2 "Anything Goes" Challenges per month for you to try, each challenge will run for two weeks!

During these Birthday Challenges...we may throw in a " Toppings" Option!  This will be an Option for both the Design Team and our participants.  You still have a chance to win even if you don't use a topping! 

We will announce a winner every 2nd week! 

Any product is welcome and you are welcome to create a birthday card, invitations, tags, gift bags or anything else you may need for an upcoming birthday!

Challenge Rules (to keep things fair):

1. You must make something with a BIRTHDAY theme. 

2. Please add a direct link to your blog or to an online gallery.

3. Feel free to use other challenges or for a stamp release, it doesn't matter, as long as you add this challenge link to your post.

4. Any offensive posts or cards that do not follow the guidelines will be removed out of courtesy to fellow bloggers and the design team.

5. As always, please have fun and make the sketch your own!

This linky will close at Noon on the Tuesday before the next Seize the Birthday Challenge.
